Saddle Box review

I was contacted last week by Saddle Box's owner, Phil, who asked if I would review the product on my blog.  I am happy to do so!  All my opinions are my own and I am in no way sponsored by or affiliated with Saddle Box.   
Saddle Box is a monthly subscription box full of equine related goodies for both rider and horse!  It can contain items such as treats, grooming tools, books, and small tack.  It seems there are a lot of these surprise monthly subscription boxes in a variety of styles these days, and it was only a matter of time until one was made especially for horse folks!

The first box has a 15% off coupon, so it costs $29.71 the first month and $34.95 each month thereafter which includes shipping.  They do ship to Canada for an extra $10 shipping. You can buy a Saddle Box for yourself or give it as a gift.  Once you sign up, it will automatically renew (and charge your credit card) every month unless you indicate for no box that month.

Driving Miss Snappy

Snap Dancer has a reputation for being a tough little race mare, but she is actually a peach to drive.  My friend Katie was her groom and she not only loved to sit behind Snap, but also her husband learned to jog with her!  She is like a jogging schoolmaster!  LOL!  ;-)

So, while I have been having a blast schooling her in dressage and jogging her under saddle, I have never driven Snappy.  I finally put together a harness for her (it has a lot less parts than a pleasure driving harness, that's for darn sure!) and my grandfather was kind enough to cut the long ends off one of his old wooden jog carts and rig it up with the quick hitch hardware.  My weekends were so packed that we did not have a chance to try it out as soon as I had hoped.  
My son approved.
He actually brought it up to me the day of prom (April 27) but we did not get to give it a test until June 1!!   While I knew Snappy would be fine, I did want him there for our first try.  Of course, she was perfect!!!  I love driving her and cannot wait until I have the money to buy a pleasure carriage for her!


I finally got my son to take pics after we had jogged 2.5 miles!
Coming down to a walk...
All smiles!  She was super fun!  Can you see how HOT it was that day!?!  This was at 9AM but it made it to 90 degrees!
That's my grandfather coming out to help...

YAY!!!

  2. Very cool! I love it that your grandfather gave you an old cart and he was helping you with her. How awesome is that? :-)

    And on another note - that looks like so much fun! I'm so glad that Snappy is working out so well for you.
